Benjamin Pollock's ToyshopThis tiny shop in the heart of Covent Garden is crammed full of traditional toys but is probably most famous for its selection of toy theatres which can cost anything from a fiver to fifteen hundred. Wind your way up the spiral staircase and wallow in a wonderland which can only really be described as a real box of delights. Keep a look out for the traditional Jack in the Boxes, Russian dolls, marionettes, glove puppets and toy soldiers. This is pure nostalgia.
